Awaken to the Path of Yoga

Discover how you can bring yoga to the world through

a deeper connection with yourself, your practice and within your community

 200hr Yoga Teacher Training & Mentorship Program



Know yourself and yoga at a level that models the intertwining of human nature with Divine Love.


Self-reflection and personal growth are the foundations of becoming a grounded, inspiring, and skilled yoga teacher/leader which is why it is the root of our training. When you use self-observation as a tool to learn what brings you more Freedom, you begin to find your own authentic expression as a teacher.


This training is designed to bring yogic philosophies, teachings and practices to life for you.  During our time together, you will have space to experience with curiosity and spaciousness why you do yoga and what you deeply want from your practice.  Through a supportive container you begin to discover how to live your practice and teach from an embodiment of the principles of Yoga.


Everything in this training was created with connection in mind ~ the development of your relationship to your yoga practices, yourself, one another in our learning container and the world. We keep each cohort intimate so that you each receive the full attention you deserve. Discussion time for self-awareness, personal- growth and shared insights is integrated into every module. We go beyond just lecture ~ we value your voice and inner wisdom.


All are
welcomed here ~

Do you have a foundation in yoga that allows you to be ready for the layers of discovery that can create more freedom and options for you? 


Do you want to understand yoga at a level that takes asana into the dimensions of the mind, emotions and spirit that bring deep transformation?

This training is really for ANYONE who is authentically and courageously interested in personal growth.

At the core, this training is a personal growth immersion based in yogic and mind/body healing techniques. The teacher is the strongest student and learns at levels of profound depth, though you do not have to want to teach to join us!

Meet Madia ~

Even after decades of being one of the first people to bring yoga to this region and 10 years of running yoga teacher trainings, I always stay true to why I created them for the Chattanooga area in the first place ~ 


I want to empower people to know themselves and yoga at a level that models the intertwining of human nature with the heart of ananda (bliss).


I want to guide people into deeper confidence in teaching a self-reflective, safe and 

stimulating (foundational) yoga practice.


I want to help people develop a stronger sense of their unique expression and how to 

bring that into the world with integrity and passion.


And I want to do this through creating a intimate, safe container for mental, physical and 

emotional exploration in relation to the concepts of yoga.

REGAN M, 2019

If you have ever remotely considered yoga teacher training, this is the one. Madia Swicord gives 100% to her students and her clients.

I cannot imagine the last year of my life without her guidance, laughter, and love.

CARI P, 2019

200 hour YTT with Madia was transformational. She created an intimate environment that felt safe and nurturing allowing me to truly look inward and unite my mind, body, and spirit, the true meaning of yoga. Under Madia’s guidance, I not only deepened my personal practice but greatly improved my relationship with myself.

HALEY P, 2019

My YTT experience with Madia not only enhanced my yoga practice, but helped me to grow as a person. Madia’s authenticity gave me a sense of security and confidence to develop the skills I need to be effective as a yoga instructor and in my career as a counselor.
